Cubs Lose In Pittsburgh

The Cubs had won eleven of 13 and were 21-and-10 since June third. But Paul Maholm threw seven strong innings to improve to 5-and-11 overall. The Cubs are 8-and-13 against left-handed starters this season and 0-and-2 against Maholm. He is 4-and-0 in five career starts against them.

Maholm gave up four runs, but two came after he left the game following singles by Alfonso Soriano and Mike Fontenot to start the eighth inning.

Damaso Marte pitched a scoreless ninth in his first save opportunity of the season.
